"the Texas AG found 26 cases of voter irregularities."

Yep, it's a hard thing to find and usually harder to get a conviction, especially when the person voting has not been required to identify himself. There's really no way to know just how much fraud is going on, is there? Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

It may, or may not be an epidemic problem and is not generally an issue except in very close elections. The harm of requiring an ID, however, is even less of a concern.

All the arguments against it stem from the rather dubious and I believe totally biased phone survey conducted by NYU of 987 people. The results allegedly show that poor minorities are less likely to have photo ID than rich crackers. (not to be confused with Ritz Crackers)

The survey did attempt to answer the rather obvious question, why? But, makes the ridiculous assertion that they can't afford it.!!!!! The survey was not designed to solve that social problem of so many people who are out of the mainstream of society, unable to even cash a check, like, say, their welfare check.

So, they claim requiring a photo ID to vote is as egregious as some guy standing in front of the polling place with a night stick preventing white people from voting.

No wait, Holder dropped the charges on that guy! Yeah, that's ok, because that guy was just making sure Obama got elected. But, Texas just wanting to make sure everyone who votes is supposed to vote, and are who they say they are?.... eh, not so much. Nope, can't have none o' dat.

31 states have enacted photo ID laws. So far, nobody has been unable to vote because of it. ...... But, the ACLU is working on that survey right now. Let me make a prediction. 99% of poor minorities have been impacted.

"Rambler, first you say that gridlock is good..
and now you are in favor of more laws ????????? "

I said it is good for now. Meaning, until Obama is evicted from the premises of the White House.
